Leaving King Salmon. Much nicer weather.


Had to climb pretty high today to get over this area. Mt. Foraker.



View out the side window. Mt. McKinley, I believe.



Saw a bunch of ships today -- three on the way and then these.

Got fall colors overnight in Anchorage.

Still climbing.



The reason for climbing.


After that I spent the rest of the trip slowly getting lower again.




There were fall colors here too but it was mostly pine trees so it didn't show up in this picture.
